Chrysanthemum tea is a remarkable healing drink that is rich in beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, and iron. It contains potent anti-viral and antibacterial properties that make it highly beneficial for healing colds, flu, sore throats, itchy eyes, respiratory and sinus infections, urinary tract infections, and bladder and kidney infections.
Chrysanthemum tea is also very helpful in easing anxiety, tension, irritation, nervousness, and confusion. It is known to rejuvenate the brain as well as calm down the nervous system, leaving you alert and grounded. It is also good for blocked arteries, varicose veins, atherosclerosis, stabilizing blood pressure, and for preventing coronary artery disease.
Chrysanthemum tea has a cooling effect on the body and can help to bring down fevers, heat rash, and heat stroke. Chrysanthemum tea can help to ease headaches, nerve pain, and toothaches. It also aids in digestion of heavy or rich meals and is an effective liver detoxifier. To make this healing and refreshing tea, use 1-2 tsp of dried flower tops to 1 cups of boiling water and let steep for at least 20 minutes, strain and sweeten with raw honey if desired.
The dry flowers can also be soaked in water and used topically as a natural treatment for acne, eczema, psoriasis, or dry, itchy skin. Dried Chrysanthemum flowers can be found online or at your local health food store.
